🔗 Oh no. Heaven forbid Toby you should ever put your.
🔗 Found Rex come on it's not like
🔗 that almost died I mean why should you look after rats not what I'm saying.
🔗 My point is maybe we're not the best people to do it.
🔗 Imagine trying to get him up in the morning telling him what he can
🔗 and can't look he's never listened with the bickering all the time it's still what
🔗 has to happen. Yes but he might take it better from someone outside the family.
🔗 It's hard like you can't afford to pay for a carer.
🔗 He's not the issue and she happened to be young and attractive with a kind smile
🔗 and a smart little uniform are you joking now.
🔗 He might actually enjoy being bossed about Toby.
🔗 It's his heart
🔗 that needs nursing not anything else besides which is up to us to take care of dad

🔗 Where you can't even be sure that once is to go down to it.
🔗 We didn't want to at the hospital know and he said not to make a song
🔗 and dance doesn't mean you have to take him at face value.
🔗 Good God so be the selfish can you be.

🔗 that I do realize you've got more important things to do like rugby dinners
🔗 and trolling tinderbox get off your high horse your want he wanted me to put the
🔗 business first. I also expected you to behave like a decent person.
